In a likely precursor to his anticipated return to NBC NEWS (NET NEWS 3/4), ANDREW LACK submitted his resignation as CEO and Director to the BROADCASTING BOARD OF GOVERNORS YESTERDAY (3/4), six weeks into the job.
Dir./Global Operations ANDRÉ MENDES will serve as interim CEO and Director of the agency while a search for LACK's successor at the agency which oversees the VOICE OF AMERICA and other U.S.-backed international broadcasting efforts is underway.
In a statement from the BBG, the agency said, "ANDREW LACK was a strong choice to serve as the BBG’s first CEO and Director. He has a passion for our work, appreciation for our history and understanding of the importance of our mission.... We will benefit from ANDY’s observations and thoughts, based on his time with us, on how to move the agency forward as a world-class multimedia news organization."
